Three nursing students injured as college bus overturns

 Three students of a nursing college were injured and 15 had a miraculous escape when their bus hit a median and turned turtle.

The incident occurred on Chord Road on Wednesday morning. Students, all boys of Bhavani Nursing College in KP Agrahara, were returning to their hostel from KSR-Bengaluru City Railway Station after a trip to Gujarat.

According to the police, the accident occurred at around 5.30 am when the driver was trying to avoid collision with another vehicle on a slope at the Chord Road-Magadi Road junction.

The driver lost control over the bus and hit the median. The impact was so severe that the bus turned turtle.

The three injured students were shifted to a nearby hospital where they are undergoing treatment.

A few others were given first aid and discharged as outpatients. As it was early in the morning, traffic was thin, but passersby rushed to the help of the students. Kamakshipalya traffic police cleared the road by towing away the bus.

No complaint

 “We have not received a complaint from anyone regarding this incident. No other vehicle was involved. We helped in clearing the road and traffic resumed,” a senior police officer said.
